Just give me a rough estimation i know power consumption is key, but i like rough
What does 500E buy? buying new or used?
7950 is a great bang for the buck.
a 7790 is the best Hash rate per power ratio.
You can check here.
7970 does about 680 mh/s @ 1150mhz
a 7950 does 600mh/s at 1200mhz
a 7790 does 350 mh/s at 1175mhz
Waiting list is very long. Ive ordered afew of them in Feb 2013 and still do not have mine.
The thing about gpu mining is ALT coins.. so far staff has only gave the ok to Bitcoin talk...
So if they ok is given on " General mining " i will talk alt coins... With gpus there is more money to be made in Script mining Asics cannot script mine... You then can exchange the alt coin for bit coins and buy / sell trade.
